Injuries Affect UFC 108 Betting

December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC 108 betting will still be exciting with Rashad Evans facing Thiago Silva but it could have been a blockbuster card if not for the injuries.

Those that bet on UFC 108 will still have a lot of great fights to choose from but it still is the card it could have been.

UFC 108 betting from Las Vegas, Nevada on January 2nd will include 11 fights, five of which are on the main card. Evans and Silva headline the UFC 108 betting card but that fight could have been just one of many great bouts. Originally it looked like Anderson Silva would face Vitor Belfort but Silva is not fully healthy. Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin would have been on the UFC 108 betting card but Lesnar is ill. Carwin is hurt as well or he could have been going up against Cain Velasquez. The last big bout that was thrown out of UFC 108 betting was Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Velasquez. That bout has now been moved to UFC 110.

If that wasn’t enough changes in UFC 108 betting there are more. It was going to be Gabriel Gonzaga and Junior dos Santos for those that bet on UFC 108 but Gonzaga is out with an illness. Carlos Condit had to pull out of the card due to injury as did Tyson Griffin and Rory Markham.

So where does that leave UFC 108 betting? There are 11 fights scheduled for January 2nd in Las Vegas for those that bet on UFC 108 to consider. The headliner has Rashad Evans a 2-1 UFC 108 betting favorite against Thiago Silva. Also on the main card it will be Sam Stout vs. Joe Lauzon, Jim Miller vs. Sean Sherk, Junior dos Santos vs. Gilbert Yvel and Paul Daley against Dustin Hazelett in UFC 108 betting. Sherk is more than a 2-1 favorite in UFC 108 betting against Miller, dos Santos is almost a 3-1 favorite against Yvel, Lauzon is almost 3-1 in UFC 108 betting against Stout while the Daley-Hazelett bout is a pick.

The six preliminary bouts for those that bet on UFC 108, two of which will air live on Spike TV include Mike Pyle vs. Jake Ellenberger, Rafaello Oliveira vs. John Gunderson, Cole Miller vs. Dan Lauzon, Mark Munoz vs. Ryan Jensen, Steven Cantwell vs. Vladimir Matyushenko and Jacob Volkmann vs. Martin Kampmann.
